The first week of the Trump Presidency has been a whirlwind. Every day President Trump has taken an executive action that radically changes the policy of the United States government. On Tuesday 24th, he signed an executive order withdrawing the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership. A monumental change.
The United States seemed destined to become part of a trade pact that would weaken the sovereignty of the government of the United States of America and would make our government’s laws subject to the whims and complaints of foreign corporations.
This decision to refuse to wait for Congress or anyone else and unilaterally withdraw the United States from this horrible trade deal is as important and as monumental as the Brexit vote that happened in Great Britain. It is a formal break of the United States from the corporatism, globalist order. It is a signal to the world that, from now on, America will be making its own decisions and not merely what the corporate structure wishes us to do.
Today, Thursday 26th has been even more daring and bold, Trump signed executive orders making it the policy of the United States to build a border wall on the US/Mexico border, to cut federal grants to cities that protect illegal immigrants (so called “sanctuary cities”).
And news has recently come out that he is expected to sign executive orders completely cutting off Syrian refugees from coming to America, temporarily suspend our entire refugee program, and temporarily suspending visas for people coming from “Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen”.
It is on days like these that I am reminded of when Trump said “We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say please, please, it’s too much winning, we can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much! And I’ll say no it isn’t!”. Mr. President, it’s too much winning. I can’t take too much more winning. Take a break Trump, play a round of golf or something. If you keep following through on your campaign promises, at this rate, you will be done by the end of next week.
Right now, at this very moment, the United States is experiencing what has been called a “revolution from the top”. It is when the leader of a country decides to, single handedly, change the country.
Ultimately, if this revolution is to be taken to its final conclusion, it will lead to Donald Trump becoming a dictator. It is possible, that if he brings this country to great heights and is able to provide a positive, safe, and fulfilling life for millions of Americans, then he could take the position of dictator with a great deal of support.
It has been clear over the past fifteen years that this country was not ours. It was not ours in the sense that whatever international and multinational interests wanted to do to our country, they were free to do so. International banks robbed our country blind, multinational corporations robbed our country of tens of thousands of jobs, international interests have dictated our immigration policy to make more money for themselves by flooding our country with low wage migrants and thus undercutting the wages of the native population.
In other words, Trump is trying to make America, America again. Run by Americans and for Americans. Not an America that shuns all immigration. But an America that has three qualifications for immigration: 1)that you come to this country legally, 2) that your culture has shown an ability to integrate into American society, and 3) that levels of immigration not overwhelm the native population.
As Patrick Henry once said “I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past.” We know the types of policies that will be successful for this nation and which will not be. We know which immigrants have shown the ability to integrate into our culture and which have shown their utter inability to do so.
We know that letting in massive amounts of immigrants from any culture will lead to those immigrants separating themselves from the rest of America and trying to build power to impose their own culture in their own areas. We also know that immigrants coming from Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East in any amount, have shown an utter inability to integrate into American culture and have been one unending problem.
We have spent the better part of five decades trying to help these problems. We have spent the better part of five decades running an immigration policy based on global charity and corporate profit, it is time to put America first!
